QVC shows in May for tarte & bareMinerals plus huge Ebates cash back birthday celebration

hi ladies! i try to write these types of posts towards the beginning of the month, but it totally slipped my mind this time. fortunately, i’m giving up a few days head’s up so you can set your DVRs accordingly!

for tarte:
Wednesday, May 15, 2013 from 6 – 7 p.m. ET
Friday, May 17, 2013 from 10 – 11 p.m. ET

for bareMinerals:
Thursday, May 30, 2013 from 1 – 3 p.m., 7 – 8 p.m. ET
Friday, May 31, 2013 from 11 a.m. – Noon, 6 – 8 p.m. ET

i used to follow a lot more brands on QVC, but i have cut back and only follow these 2 brands. also, i only really pay attention to their hour or two-hour long shows and not when they go on Tuesday Night Beauty, Friday Night Beauty, or The Lisa Robertson Show (or others) when they just feature one product or two. that would just be too hard to keep up with and i don’t think QVC actually goes into that much detail during those variety shows. i do follow both brands on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook so they just send updates when they are going to be on air to promote a new product or an existing kit. if i happen to catch them, i’ll try my best to share them as well.

my friend Lexi (lvrnotafighter) informed me that tarte has a new palette out on the Q. it’s also a round palette just like the Aqualillies one that i purchased and one other that they had on the Q a long time ago (i believe it was a palette of Maureen’s favorite shades). check out the palette here. while the packaging is very beach-y looking (with the starfish on the lid), the only thing that i’m not fond of is that it comes with yet another Park Ave Princess bronzer. i have so many of those already from other kits. but i do love wearing it as a creased/transition/blending out color (as long as it’s the matte version). the palette comes with 6 eye shadows and a full size blush! man, oh, man, i’m such a sucker for those Amazonian clay blushes! they are one of my favorites! i’ve only ever purchased Exposed on its own… and then the 4-piece blush collection last holiday but they were half-sizes. i started going through my makeup collection over the weekend and i removed so much! now i have a lot of empty spots to fill back up! LOL the palette is on a featured price of $39.96 and i’m sure they’ll be showcasing this palette during their show on Wednesday or Friday (if it doesn’t sell out). i’m so tempted to get it!

as for bareMinerals, since their shows are at the end of the month, the Q will probably list any new products close to that time… nothing is calling out to me right now… except for maybe the TSV that aired on April 20th. it’s no longer the TSV, but since i’ve been working on my READY foundation a lot lately, i’m considering getting it… but $76.82 (and not on easy pay) is a lot of money even though it’s a great deal since everything is full size. the blush/luminizer duo is so pretty! but no, i have to control myself! Ebatesis having 14% cash back at Nordstrom and Macy’s right now and i’ve been eyeballing the Obsessed with Pink kit which is $49 and then you get 14% cash back. ugh! these summer collections just kill me! they are so bad on the wallet! LOL i’m still waiting for my Hautelook purchase when theBalm had a lot of their products for 50% off (since i missed their site-wide half off sale when they finally got their site working again).

that’s it for now, i think. i should do some sort of weekly “what i’m lusting for” blog post so i can share what’s on my radar… i just need to add more beauty-related blog posts to this blog regardless! there’s always so much to do… but thank you for stopping by! hope you have a great week ahead! Smile xoxo
